In yesterday's issue of the Star, our
good friend, Superintendent Brinson,
benevolently raked us over the coals
for our criticisms on the public
school system and some mistakes
which some teaclers, mostly owing to
the system, have made.
.Mr. Brinson alleges that we have it
in for the teachers. This allegation
we deny and defy the allegator to
prove it. We like all school teachers,
and some of them we positively adore.
We sadly admit that we did not come
into much contact with teachers dur
ing our boyhood days. It was in try
ing to avoid one teacher and a four-
foot hickory gad that he kept nana
that we graduated or rather quitu
ated. We should not presume to crit
icise the school system from the m
side. We have based our judgment of
it from the visible results, from the
comments of many intelligent patrons
who are closer to the results than we
are. on some information which the
average teacher will scout at name
ly. that furnished by school children
and largely on information furnished
by teachers themselves. Supeiinten
dent Brinson has given us some of it.
He is, in a measure, an old-fashioned
teacher,. and is not in love with some
of the fads we object to any more
than we are.
Mr. Brinson partly admits one of
our criticisms when he says:
"It is possible that we have some
superfluous material in our, schoo
curriculum but do you really think
you are qualified to present a better
collection of materials for mforma
tion and mental and moral develop
We do not think we are competent
to present any system of education.
What we would like to do would be to
prune, not destroy, the present sys
tem. It tries to do too much. It loads
on" the scholars more than some o:
them are mentally able to assimilate
and on all of them a good deal that is
of no use. Our theory is that in public
schools there should be nothing
taught except what is of use to every
one. We think "that when a scholar
comes to a point where he or she
wishes ..to take up a study to prepare
for a special business that then and
there the state should stop and the
scholar's parents or guardians should
begin. Our public schools have been
for years adding lines that favor-spe
cial professions. They particularly
favor the teaching profession. A
young man or woman who successful
ly graduates from one of our high
schools is competent to begin teach
ing school. He or she can graduate in
June and take charge of a school in
August or September. But a high
school education doesn't qualify a
young man or woman, without other
training, to step right into some other
work. It is the obvious truth of this
state of affairs that has caused us to
say the teachers are forming a caste
and are unconsciously thinking of
their scholars as teachers of the fu
ture, instead of being .merchants
farmers or mechanics.
Matters have progressed to this
point because educational affairs have
been left almost altogether in th
hands of the teachers. Whenever it
has occurred to them that the children
needed a new study or a new method
they have stuck it on. They have
done this, we believe, unconsciously
While they are becoming a privileged
class, they are not aware of it. A

are a privileged class, tho making the
laws for centuries, until they have
so tangled civilization up in techni
cahties that only a very rich or a
very poor man can obtain justice
without its costing him more than it
comes to. Theologians do not think
they are a privileged class, yet it was
only a short time ago that they realiz
ed a layman had any right to form an
opinion on religion, and they would
not realize it now if the layman had
not insisted on obtruding the realizer
upon them. Emperors, kings and
princes do not think they are a priv

divine right. Leave anything in the
hands of a family, clan or class for
a time, and they will not look upon it
as a privilege but property.

We have a friend who has promised

We think Mr. Sears has been a
school teacher we do not see how he

have a pretty good opinion of Mr.
Sears, and this bill is about the only
one of his we ever objected to. We
do. not object to school teachers as
statesmen, but we would hate like the
dickens to live in a country where
they were the absolute rulers. And
if the already large influence of the
teachers in this country was backed
up by a military class composed of
high school students, according to Mr
Sears' law, we and other people out

have to tend school all the time or be

time in the year, a good deal of which
he has to devote to study to prepare
himself for the next term. But with
all that he has more spare time of his
own and better pay than the average
man of his age and standing. His
assistants receive from $60 a month
up. They earn it all, but they are
better paid and not so hard worked

Men school teachers do not work
nearly as hard as farmers or mechan
ics, clerks, bookkeepers and others in
their rank in life. And they are on
the average better paid than the men

With women school teachers, the
school room is generally only a step stepping
ping stepping stone to matrimony. They are
almost always attractive and by the
nature of their calling better able to
manage a man than anybody but a
trained nurse. If you see a lady
school teacher over thirty years old
and single, you may be pretty sure
that she has refused a dozen or more
men and is absolutely wedded to her
profession. Women school teachers
receive less money than expert steno stenographers
graphers stenographers or telegraph operators, they
receive as much as telephone opera operators
tors operators or the higher class of clerks,
they receive more than shopgirls and
factory girls and they do not have
to? work as hard as any of the others

studying is not as hard work as bend bending

not have. In comparison with other
professions, the teachers do very well.

in case of the first three they must

families to send their children to

teen fourteen years old. Several of the studies,
as we have already said, are utterly
unnecessary. Several more should be
taught only in private schools. It is
easy to see from a number of the
books that the studies overlap that
is, that a book in one grade runs back
into one in the previous grade, in instead

chairman will furnish large painted
banners with the names of the battle
ships, and these they will place across
the soldiers of the little navy men
just before the pageant.

that all the church services of to-

hours, but by the new time. That is,
that all clocks be moved forward one
hour, and as Sunday school was held
at 9:30 a. m. by the old time, so it will
be held at 9:30 a. m. by the new time,
and as the morning church service
was at 11 a. m. by the old time, it
shall be at 11 a. m. by the 'new time,

We are to retire an hour earlier, arise
an hour earlier, breakfast, dine and
sup an hour earlier, go to business
and close our business an hour earlier
by following the same hours as here heretofore
tofore heretofore after we have set forward our
clocks and watches. This is the only
way we can save daylight. This is the
way it is done in Canada, I am told.
All the people must work together.
And just here a word needs to be said
to the public about their trading. Un Under
der Under the new regulation there will be
ample time to do necessary shopping
without requiring our merchants to
keep open after dark. Especially is
this true of Saturday night. There is
no reason why we should compel the
merchant to keep open till late Sat Saturday
urday Saturday night. It keeps many people
from Sunday school and church, and
it burns up electricity unnecessarily.
Shop early, and do not put off till
night to buy what you could buy dur during

patriotic service. Let us one and all
get behind the new regulation and
obey it scrupulously.
